I really wanted to get rid of that car and i was not about to Craigslist it.
I've been wanting to give Carmax a chance but geeze, 10,000 for a car that sold for 16 20,000 miles earlier, they sure jerk you around.

Craigslist is pretty infuriating though, I can't belive people waste their time and others on stupid spam.

The paintless dent removal idea is a good one. Autotrader.com also has a Trade-in guarantee (they'll buy your car). It's a wholesale price, but you can disclose the damage and get an idea of what the dent has taken off the value: [url]https://tradein.autotrader.com/ATPages/TradeInMarketPlace.aspx[/url]

Have you thought about Autotrader? You can either place it on the site or you can get a quote by going to tradein.autotrader.com there you can see how much your vehicle is worth based on the information you enter. Good Luck!
